Service Fees for Processing Loans

The Archive charges fees for loans of items from its collection as a primary source of income to offset its costs. We offer our highest level of discounted pricing for individuals directly affiliated with Vanderbilt University or one of our founding sponsors. Persons affiliated with other educational institutions and sponsoring colleges and universities receive a moderate discount. All other categories of users pay the standard rate.


The Archive will loan copies of any complete Evening News program or Special News programs.
